and play dead. >> democratic senator dianne feinstein of california reacting angrily to the assault weapons ban she sponsored being dropped. senior congressional reporter for politico. this is senator reid's announcement. shame on the united states. shame on us. and shows pictures of victims of sandy hook elementary shooting there. a poll showing 57% favor an assault weapons ban. president obama in a state of the union address that we all heard and reported on the next day. those families deserve a vote. keith boykin, why can't the families get a vote on this? >> well, they deserve a vote. unfortunately they won't be getting one because senator hire reid can chose to remove this from the bill coming forward. by dianne feinstein is exactly right. this is exactly something that the public deservees a vote. and even if it doesn't pass, let's get on record where people stand on the issues. this is something a majority of the american people believe in. i think harry reid is making the wrong mistake. even if this is a tactical decision because he want a bill that passes, what democrats do too of
intelligence committees right now. we're joined by senator diane feinstein and mike rogers. the republican from michigan. let's talk about syria first, senator feinstein. how serious do you take these reports that chemical weapons were used either by the rebels or the syrian regime? >> the senate this afternoon was briefed. this is one of continuing briefs. i think any public response should come from the white house. let me just say, it is serious. and it may well take some action. >> because when you say may well take some action, congressman, you know that the president, not that long ago, said if chemical weapons were used by bashir al assad's regime, that's a game changer as far as the u.s. is concerned. are you with him on that? >> absolutely. i think the president is exactly right. i argued before, we had reports, if you recall last summer, that they had at least public reports where they moved munitions in a place where they could be used on a short notice. and there's some configuration they have to go through to be used on a short notice. that was alarming and concerning. now, they ne
senator dianne feinstein will not be included in the democratic gun control legislation that currently is working its way through the chamber. instead reid says feinstein's proposal will have, quote, an opportunity for a vote, possibly as a separate amendment. now this effort was sparked by the newtown school shooting in december and since then, we have seen a surge in applications for gun permits across this country. according to the fbi we saw a record 19 1/2 million background checks for firearms last year. nearly three million of them coming in december alone. that is the most for any month on record. and more than 7 million from december through february. that is a 54% increase from the previous year. this national trend is echoed in the microcosm of newtown, connecticut. where law enforcement say they have seen the pace of applications for gun permits double. so what does this all mean for the gun control debate, an effort going forward? joining me fox news political analyst juan williams. juan, we can talk about the strategy here and move onto the legislation itself. why, why di
leader harry reid acknowledged one bill-- an assault weapons ban crafted by california's dianne feinstein-- did not have enough support to move forward. >> but right now her amendment, using the most optimistic numbers, has less than 40 votes. i-- that's not 60. >> woodruff: a disappointed feinstein later said on cnn that she will not play dead on the issue, adding reid assured her she will have a chance to offer the ban as an amendment to a larger bill. >> if it's an amendment, that is not a symbolic vote. i did the bill in 1994 on the floor as an amendment. it enacted a law. it went on to the house. it was enacted. what senator reid told me is that i would have an opportunity for a vote. i take him at his word. >> woodruff: for now, reid and senate democrats are trying to find a way to get other measures passed. that includes an expansion of background checks, new penalties for gun trafficking and for so- called straw purchases-- when other individuals buy guns for those who aren't authorized to own them. reid is aiming for votes sometime after the easter recess. but there's still litt
feinstein fought hard to keep the revision but promises to block the full package prevailed. senators will take up increasing penalties. the ban will be offered as a separate amendment but is expected to fail when it comes up after the easter recess. >>> disturbing but details about the close call at the university of central florida. police released this video of officers responding to a 911 call about a student with a gun. it came after a false fire alarm tripped by the suspect in an attempt to lure students outside so they could be easy targets. the emergency call came from a roommate that said james pulled a gun on him. >> like a gun, like large assault gun. i don't know if it's a real gun. i don't know what it is, but i just saw it, slammed my door shut and locked it. >> they found the would-be shooter dead from a self inflicted gunshot wound. two webs were nearby. >> running against 15 other candidates, sanford got less than 15% of the vote, the gop vote for the seat vacated by tim scott when he moved to the u.s. senate. in the democratic primary, elizabeth colbert-bush won the
for the floor angered dianne feinstein, who is not giving up. >> this is very important to me. i'm not going to lay down and play dead. i think the american people have said in every single public poll that they support this kind of legislation. >>> joining me now for more on that, and all the other political news, for our daily fix, chris cillizza, and susan page. hi to both of you. while i'm away, you let the assault weapons ban die, practically, at least harry reid says he's not going to let it go forward. susan, his calculus is that it didn't have the votes and he wanted to have something passed. that's good tactics in terms of the senate, but isn't it surrendering to the nra? >> well, it's a cold calculation. what can get through the senate, the straw purchasing provision my biblt get through the senate. it's possible that university background checks, to gun shows and other venues might get through, but there was no way an assault weapons ban was going to get through this senate. not only because reps were opposed. we had half a dozen democratic senators expressing opposition or raisin
reid said it didn't have the votes to pass. senator dianne feinstein who introduced the ban said it this way. i cannot fight the nra. the nra spends unlimited sums backed by the gun manufacturer who are craven in my view. i don't know what we can done other than drafting a bill. in asking for support and enabling something to pass in the senate now i could put a hold on the whole package but i'm not going to do that. so instead the rest of the gun safety bill will go forward without the assault weapons ban. of course there is a possibility it could be attached to a later bill but certainly there is not a guarantee. gun safety is fast becoming a low priority in washington. and another is immigration. john boehner praised the bipartisan house group working on immigration legislation. >> there are a lot of issues in here that have to be dealt with and i think what this bipartisan group came up with is frankly a pretty responsible solution. >> michael: sounds like progress but of course this being washington self promotion is as much a priority as actual legislation. in these days no
's talking about dianne feinstein's assault weapons ban, which she wanted to be part of the main bill so it had a chance of passing. harry reid says it doesn't. now, dianne feinstein promises that the fight is not over and she claims that senator reid did tell her that this would be offered as an amendment on the senate floor, but-- >> it came out on 10-8 vote of the judiciary committee not to give me a vote would be a major betrayal of trust. >> megyn: joining me now to discuss that, monica crowley, she's a radio talk show host and kirsten powers, the daily beast,both are fox news contributors. and it's spin and hope that has no foundation in reality? i mean, do we all agree that her assault weapons ban for all intents and purposes is dead? offering it as a amendment, as an amendment does nothing. it will not pass. it had very little chance of passing as part of the main bill and now it's offered this way, zero chance. >> well, look, when the president did this as a state of the union, it was meant to shame the republicans. what was left unsaid was that ocrats weren't going to support i

24 hours? chr chris cillizza is back with us. die an feinstein saying that. it does not have the in divide government. >> the political reality here, not part of the main guns package with an acknowledgement if it was part of it, any kind of bigger package wouldn't pass. feinstein did say that it will get a vote as an amendment to the main bill. it will get a vote on the floor. we've expected this for a long time. i would say many gun control supporters have expected this. there just are not the votes in the senate for something like this. because lots of conservative democrats or democrats in conservative leaning states wouldn't vote for an assault weapons ban at this time. >> it hasn't really been a story since it expired in '04. probably won't come up for a while. thank you for joining us. that does it for this edition of "andrea mitchell reports." i'm luke russert. andrea is back tomorrow from jerusalem traveling with president obama and secretary ari. richard is in for tamron hall today. rid of, my friend, tate away. >> luke russert, always good to sigh. seven marines ki
's listen to what senator dianne feinstein had to say. >> the enemies on this are very powerful. i've known that all my life. it doesn't take a weapon away from anyone. i mean, my goodness, the nra says there are 2 million of these or 3 million of them whatever it is in the country already. how many assault weapons do you need in the united states of america? >> joining me now a democrat from connecticut. senator, it's very good to see you. thank you for joining me. >> thank you, alex. >> i'd like at the cover of "the daily news" here in new york. it shows the pictures of the victims of sandy hook elementary. right there in the center, "shame on u.s." senator blumenthal, what happened here? and do you agree about the power of so-called enemies? is this what made harry reid reverse his promise to bring this bill to the senate floor? >> you're right, alex, to describe this assault weapon ban proposal as the most ambitious. we always knew it was going to be an uphill fight. we always knew that the opponents were staunch, ruthless and relentless. and harry reid has done what may be the smart ta
that will succeed. >>> senator dianne feinstein who sponsored the ban was irritated. she said, obviously i'm disappointed. i tried my best, but my best, i guess, was not good enough. you'd think the congress would listen, but they clearly listen to the national rifle association. the ban would have outlawed 160 semiautomatic weapons and limited the size of magazines to 10 rounds. leaders are now debating which proposals will be included under consideration, a measure that would make it a felony to purchase a gun for someone else, a grant program for school security, and expansion of background checks to private gun sales. that push for background checks which shows most americans support may not be included after negotiations with schumer and colbert installed earlier in the year. a bill is expected next month. >>> the two-year-old conflict in syria is entering a critical stage. they are accusing each other of using chemical weapons. the syrian state news agency reports at least 25 people were killed yesterday. american officials said they are looking into allegations while white house pre

senator dianne feinstein who rarely lets people get her, quote, dander up. well, she let him get her dander up yesterday. >> it seems to me that all of us should begin as our foundational document with the constitution. and the second amendment in the bill of rights provides that the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. >> i'm not a sixth grader. senator, i've been on this committee for 20 years. i was a mayor for nine years. i walked in. i saw people shot. i've looked at bodies that have been shot with these weapons. >> one more thing on the 2016 front in our weekly look at this, vice president biden is embracing the idea of bidenisms in a brilliant branding effort from the vice president's office, the white house's latest foray into digital media is now an audio series called "being biden." the first episode features a picture from a stop made by serving dinner to a hunting group last week. >> these guys have the ethic, an ethic that i find most sportsmen have. i know these guys. and i know an awful lot of them. been doing it for over 30 years. they're

're in the situation room. u.s. senator dianne feinstein made news on tuesday when she promised to keep fighting for a ban on semiautomatic weapons like the one used to massacre these children and teachers in newtown, connecticut even though democratic leaders say they can't get enough votes to pass it. >> this is very important to me. and i'm not going to lay down and play dead. i think the american people have said in every single public poll that they support this kind of legislation. it's aimed to protect children, to protect schools, animald mal. it is aimed to dry up the supply of these over time. and it came out on a 10-8 vote of the judiciary committee. not to give me a vote on this would be a major betrayal of trust as i would see it. >> front page of today's "new york daily news" calls it a shame. the assault weapons ban is effectively dead at least for now. cnn's mary snow is in newtown, connecticut right now. she is asking people there what they think about all of this. what do they think, mary? >> reporter: emotional reaction, wolf. there are people here who have taken on an active

against its own people let's listen to what dianne feinstein said yesterday to wolf blitzer. >> the white house has to make some decisions in this. i think the days are becoming more desperate. the regime is more desperate. we know where the chemical weapons are. it's not a secret that they're there. and i think the probabilities are very high that we're going into some very dark times and i think the white house needs to be prepared. >> and you were seeing there the house intelligence chair mike rogers also in that interview echoing those concerns about where we're headed and israeli newspapers this morning are citing security forces there saying that chemical weapons have been used. what can you tell us about this at this moment? >> well obviously we share the concerns of people in washington. and it's not only the syrian regime that has those chemical weapons but as syria fragments, as the conflict there continues and we see syria break up we are very concerned about the possibility that those sorts of very dangerous weapons, chemical weapons and others, will fall into the hands of ext
this in the past and what dianne feinstein should do is look at their own party and say are there enough democrats to vote for the broad reaching measures and the answer is, honestly, no, there is not. they should have spent more time working on maybe just background checks or mental health issues and looked at actually the prosecution of crimes of those that commit gun crimes. right now in this country, you get about 4.3 years, if you use a gun in a crime, including pulling the trigger and miss, that's where they could have made real headway, they didn't do it and it is because they wasted so much time on something they couldn't even get done with their own party. >> he said sweeping, many people don't see it as sweeping. >> well, you know what, this is a situation where we have 6-year-old children getting shot, why do people need these guns that you use on a battlefield to begin with? and i think that, you know, it is such a tough issue, responsibly, people who are into hobbies, that's one thing, but these power weapons and the fact you can slaughter so many people, we have to do something. we h
the senate will debate next month. california senator dianne feinstein says instead of being included in the measure, the ban will be offered z an amendment. the ban seems to stand little chance of surviving because of expected -- defections expected from republicans, likely also defections from some moderate democrats. and now to live coverage of the u.s. senate here on c-span2. the presiding officer: the senator from oklahoma. mr. inhofe: i ask unanimous consent i be acknowledged for up to seven minutes as if in morning business. the presiding officer: without objection. mr. inhofe: thank you, madam president. we -- we've been listening to our -- our good friend from kansas concerning this contract air traffic control towers. i think of all of the -- there's no better example to use than saying -- picking up a bureaucracy and taking somebody that everybody wants, that's very inexpensive and using that to try to force people to do something that shouldn't -- that -- that should never have happened. in items of the contract air traffic control towers, this is not just a -- a rural iss
